**Getting Started With Library Research**

An overview of where to start your research journey

Introducing: Summon Search

We are introducing a new way to search:

Summon. It searches GRACE, all of our databases, open access resources, and LibGuides in one place. 

We are piloting it for the Fall Semester, so we may be tweaking settings, layouts, and functions. Please let us know what you think: - we'd love to make it better. (and don't worry, none of our existing search options are going away- this is a bonus!)


Searching Summon

Once you enter your search in, the real strength of Summon is in the refinements on the left sidebar. You can select Full Text online to limit only to ebooks and online articles, or select dates, subjects, or specific languages. 

Important Note: for items on our shelves click "check availability" to see the location and if the item is checked out.
